A Sydney man who hid $15,000 in cash in his oven has told of his torment after his wife unknowingly burned the cash while cooking a snack.
The Merrylands father thought the money – from the sale of a car over the weekend – would be safe in the oven, believing his wife did not use it.
He said he was too embarrassed about the incident to have his identity made public.
His distraught wife said she was in tears when she told her husband what had happened. “I struggled to breathe, I said ‘I burnt the money, I burnt the money’,” she said.
What kind of dumbfuck puts money in an oven?
